This random phone calling is a major problem. I live in a rural Pennsylvania location, and have had as many as 39 phone calls when I was not home, in a day, from many different locations that I have no contact with otherwise. When I am home, I do not even answer the phone unless I recognize the name or number, but.quite often, the location listed on my caller ID is from my local area, with a local area code, and a local exchange, which I know is inaccurate. How can scammers call me with a bogus telephone number purporting to be from my local area showing up on my caller ID ? I would think this is illegal, an addition to frustrating for the person called

Level 3 got bought out by Century Link, which is apparently, in turn, now owned by Lumen Technologies. Level 3 ALSO apparently got dinged with about $7 or 8 million bucks in fines for failing to lay fiberoptic cable along some highways in Massachusetts in 2016 (whether they've actually coughed the money up wasn't entirely clear).
I started looking into them to report a series of hangup calls from the same Massachusetts # [protected] that was allegedly issued by Level 3. I've gotten 6 calls from them in about 10 days (including TWO yesterday!): some coming up as "Potential Spam" on the caller ID, some coming up just as the number ("[protected]"), and a couple coming up with NO caller ID at all. Tried to contact Century and their website chatbot was useless (even by useless chatbot standards of pisspoor IT by [censored]s who can't program their way out of a paper bag) and the number to call didn't even put me through to voicemail to leave a message, just said nobody was available before 9 AM (the WEBSITE said 7 AM...). So I left the APPROPRIATE feedback on their website (including where you're supposed to be *commending* employees for their explemplary service -- yeah, what a complete crock) which included threatening them with the FCC and FTC for aiding and abetting spammers, and with a class action lawsuit. Betting there are LOTS of people out there who will be happy to join the fun, and the lawyer I'd contact has worked in the telecommunications industry dealing with land rights and such (and is a good friend, my husband calls the person "OUR FAVORITE LAWYER". Oh and successfully sued the county we live in over the train wreck that was property reassessment around 20+ years ago. Heh heh...

it would be great if i could stop any and all calls from level 3 communications. they are the provider for most of the scam calls i get.
sure would like a way to stop any calls coming from their service.
please advise if you know of any way to do that.
govt and law agencies dont seem to be able to do anything.

Received unsolicited phone calls on a cell phone that is on the do not call list. Calls come in from the number [protected], #1), a level 3 number operating out of Annandale, VA or Alexandria, VA, landline. Unable to trace name due to them having removed their name from public access, so I consider it a possible scam boiler room operation.

I don't answer numbers I don't know!

Level 3 Communications, Llc called from [protected] I blocked their number after they called 3 times every day without a message I think they are fishing.

I never pick up a number that doesn't leave a message and I never call back unless I am forced to.

No message left, no answer when picked up. etc. scam and phony and unsolicited. Makes me angry.

Received unsolicited call from a Level 3 Communications Landline in Le Sueur, MN. [protected].
I have no interest in calling them back, since they do not bona fide identify themselves.
Any number I receive a call from in future that is identified as a Level 3 Communications line will not be responded to.
